Presenting twelve breakthrough practices for bringing creativity into all human endeavors, The Art of Possibility is the dynamic product of an extraordinary partnership. The Art of Possibility combines Benjamin Zander's experience as conductor of the Boston Philharmonic and his talent as a teacher and communicator with psychotherapist Rosamund Stone Zander's genius for designing innovative paradigms for personal and professional fulfillment.

The authors' harmoniously interwoven perspectives provide a deep sense of the powerful role that the notion of possibility can play in every aspect of life. Through uplifting stories, parables, and personal anecdotes, the Zanders invite us to become passionate communicators, leaders, and performers whose lives radiate possibility into the world.

      Comments about The Art of Possibility:

      Ben Zender, a famous conductor, and his wife have approached the art of living from different perspectives, combining their insights in personal development and training young musicians in an engaging enlightening way, encouraging people to see beyond the square and embrace the Art of Possibility. They share the transformations that have changed lives and events.You need to get used to their terminology and grasp the depth behind the words. This is a book for those who believe in growth and want to overcome negativity. Well worth research.

        if you've ever been stuck in a relationship, whether personal or professional, this is the book for you. gentle and compassionate, the authors share insights into what you can do to (the practices), by believing into your abilities and putting relationships first. this is not a "how to" book, but gets you thinking about how you can avoid the traps that you keep falling into, and new ways to go about achieving the things that matter to you
